Georgia Gwinnett College Library
The 90,883 SF, four-story, LEED Gold library was envisioned, designed, and built as a “knowledge center,” expanding the traditional role of the academic library to become the intellectual and social heart of the campus. This knowledge center exemplifies the dynamic nature of the college’s vision to be a premier 21st century liberal arts college where learning takes place beyond the confines of the traditional classroom.
Among other functions and services traditionally provided by a college library, the project also consists of high-tech information commons, small group study rooms, distance learning, video conference rooms, stacks for 400,000 volumes, faculty teaching/learning center and student success center. The design of the library guides architectural and site criteria for future campus buildings.
